ICTP helps in establishment of new centre for physics and mathematics

K.R. Sreenivasan, ICTP Director, and S. Randjbar-Daemi, Assistant Director, visited Morocco from 6-8 July 2008. The main purpose of the visit was to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of National and Higher Education, Executive Training and Scientific Research, together with the National Center for Nuclear Energy, Sciences and Techniques, for the creation of a Centre for Physics and Mathematics (CPM). The main objectives of CPM are to foster advanced research in theoretical physics and mathematics in Morocco's universities and research institutions, as well as in neighboring countries of North Africa. The CPM will be patterned after ICTP, which will assist in designing and running the scientific activities of CPM. The Director also met with the President and other leading authorities at the University Ibn Tofail, Kenitra, and the Permanent Secretary, Professor Omar Fassi-Fehri, of the Hassan II Academy of Science and Technology, and discussed their commitment for CPM.
